We’re creeping up on that time of year where people start complaining about how summer is ending. It can suck. True. Summer is definitely my favorite season. But you know what? I was thinking about it yesterday … and I realized there’s a ton of amazing things to look forward to in the next couple of months!
Flip flops are fabulous. But what about knee high boots? And leather? And tights?! AND SCARVES???? ‘Tis the season (I have like 20 scarves … I’ve missed them).
Also, my (far too frequent) trips to Starbucks are about to change. For the better. I love me some iced coffee all summer long, but you guys, pumpkin spiced lattes are almost here. September 4th, my spies tell me. Try and complain about the temperature cooling down now. I dare you.
I sweat less. I smell less. Everyone is happy.
Ummm, all of the TV shows restart in September and October. Just try and make me grumpy with information like that. Try it. It’s impossible when shows like Grey’s Anatomy/Glee/Survivor/How I Met Your Mother (plus like fifteen more) are on and featuring brand new shows. Sayonara, reruns!
The smell of new school supplies. I like being in stores this time of year just for that.
I like my sleep. Who doesn’t? I also live on the eighth floor of an apartment complex. With no air conditioning. Remember back in school how you learned that heat rises? That’s true, guys. And eight floors up in the summertime is HOT. Once the mercury lowers … guess who is getting back to a regular sleep pattern? This (soon to be well rested) girl.
Thanksgiving (and more specifically, the big ass meal planned for that day). Duh.
What are some of your favorite parts of fall? Let’s beat the “end of summer blues” with a little positivity, shall we?
Have a fabulous LONG WEEKEND! Oh, lordy. I’m pumped for that extra day off.
